  1. Disrupting How Progressivism Works in America Regular Progressivism as a process of political change in America (baby steps) rarely fails, but it's slow. As shown below, there is a tonic. The jig can get blown when a Black Swan (say, a wildcard like President Trump) disrupts the ongoing progress of the ideological-political conveyor belt. The result is that, in panic, the "Progressives" who are progressing a specific agenda will freak and show their cards way too early. It's the paranoia of a liar who loses the attention of his target and thinks that means he's been busted. Here
  2. I hear that the DNC has arranged for a large number of women who are mothers of young black men shot by police to appear at the convention. The idea is to reinforce the false narrative that police are racist and killing young black men in disproportionate numbers. One of the women is the mother of Michael Brown, who Eric Holder's Justice department reluctantly concluded was trying to kill the police officer who had to shoot him out of self-defense. That they would include her tells me that they have reached a high level of confidence that they are no longer bound by the truth or any facts i
  3. The thread title was suggested (sort of) by Michael. I emailed him and asked about promoting my books on OL. He chided me for being shy about it. Thank you, Michael. Here's the story: I've wanted, especially as I get older, to make some kind of effort towards changing our country's political trajectory. Each time someone came up with an idea, like Mark Levin's Liberty Amendments (for the constitution), or Charles Murray's civil disobedience schemes, or Thomas Wood's ideas on State Nullification, I'd get excited... for a short time. I'd think, "Yes! Finally, a way to t
  4. All indications are that shady businessman Terry McAuliffe (D) will win the Virginia governorship today, and with his incoming administration's tie-breaking vote, swing the 50-50 Virginia Senate under the control of the Democratic Party. Here's what a CNN contributor found so noxious about Republican candidate Ken Cuccinelli: "Tea party favorite and self-described "Second Amendment-supporting Christian right-to-life home-school dad," Cuccinelli has built a political career on a foundation of strident social conservatism. Proclaiming "homosexuality is wrong," supporting abstinence-only sex educ
  5. One of the strangest progressive memes of the past few years has got to be the following, which is currently making the rounds on social media: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/10/10/1141724/-Walmart-fuels-inequality-epidemic-taking-advantage-of-our-safety-net http://activism.thenation.com/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=11116&tag=twitter Stripping away the many superfluous adjectives, the argument goes something like this: - Walmart pays low wages and limited healthcare benefits to many of its employees - Some of the employees are eligible for food stamps and Medicaid because
  6. A progressive writer for Slate by the name of Matt Yglesias (formerly associated with the Center for American Progress, and apparently a big deal in that community) posted a statement to his Twitter account yesterday that I found interesting. Though I don’t follow Yglesias on Twitter and had not heard of him before, the post came to my attention when it was retweeted by a buffoonish progressive blogger I do follow for the sole purpose of publicly shaming him in what can be best analogized as a regular pheasant hunt on the grounds of my digital estate. Yglesias’s tweet, most likely written in r
